TASK 4 - ASSESS YOUR SELF MANAGEMENT ABILITIES
Rate your ability on the five point scale below on each of the FOUR Self Management abilities.
Then, justify and support your ratings by completing parts A, B, C in the textboxes below.
PART A Justification
Part A is analytical, not descriptive. You should justify your assessment of your skills by analysing the evidence that you submitted to complete the missions.
When re-considering the missions you have completed you might reconsider what went well or what went badly and seek to analyse the reasons why they went well or badly and what the consequences were for your own skills development.
PART B Conclusion
In Part B you should sum up what you have learnt about yourself as a result of completing the missions and this self-assessment exercise.
What did you learn about your current level of knowledge or competence?
What could or should you have done differently? What stopped you from doing this?
PART C Improvement Plan
Part C should build on Parts A and B to identify the main areas for improvement and describe specific actions designed to address these areas.
Your action plan should flow naturally from the conclusions you reached in Part B. Where your conclusions identified areas for improvement, these should be addressed in the action plan. Even where the learning and development experience was positive you should identify how you can improve further.
You should justify the selected actions by explaining why you plan to do them and what outcome you hope to achieve.
